Mr PEACOCK (Kooyong) (Minister for Foreign Affairs) -I require the debate to be extended. I wish to compliment the honourable member for Phillip (Mr Birney) on the matters he has just put before the House. The Government regards as totally abhorrent the fiction that Zionism can be equated with racism. I am cheered by the remarks that the honourable member made tonight. He is to be complimented for them. They are in fact an endorsement of the

Government's own attitude. I also listened with interest to what the honourable member for Angas (Mr Giles) said this evening regarding aspects of Australia's development assistance programs and wish to inform him that some weeks ago I instructed the Australian Development Assistance Agency to re-examine some of the matters raised in the speech by the honourable member particularly in regard to the wishes of some developing countries. I would like him and the House to know that I am prepared to closely examine further the matters that he has raised this evening.

Mr SPEAKER -Order! The debate having concluded, the House stands adjourned until 10.30 a.m. tomorrow.

House adjourned at 11.1 p.m.
